Secondary One Headstart Programme

Transition between primary school to secondary school is one of the most challenging periods of a child’s education journey. A child has to cope with many different changes all happening at one go. Used to just 3 or 4 academic subjects in primary school, they will now take up 9 to 10 in secondary school. Not only that, the child needs time to adjust to the new environment meeting new friends and teachers in school. CCA is definitely going to take up a portion of their time in school as well.

Start your child’s preparation for secondary school life early so that the transition into secondary school will be seamless. While waiting for the school posting to be out, parents can encourage their child to read up on the school that they have chosen, checking out the environment and find out what CCAs or programmes do the school offer. Parents can also prepare your child academically so that they will not feel so stressed when faced with many subjects completely new to them.

Learning Chapters is offering our unique Secondary One Head Start Programme. All our workshops are taught by ex-MOE teachers who know best what struggles new secondary one students face. Our highly experienced tutors specially crafted the workshop curriculum and materials to help your child prepare for the work in the coming academic year.
